that in there. this is such an odd situation where the defense explicitly said before the trial stand your ground is not going to be part of this case. and that's because their defense was that george zimmerman was pinned down. >> right. >> unable to escape, even if he wanted. and yet there it is in the jury instruction. and here the jurors are talking about it afterwards. i think that the way stand your ground came in most of all was in george zimmerman's decision to get out of the car, knowing that he was carrying a concealed weapon. and remember, he got an a in the class where he was taught stand your ground and self-defense law. i think in his mind putting it all together, he was not afraid. he was going to follow trayvon martin who he assumed was a criminal, and he was doing that knowing that he was armed and knowing that the law would protect him. and it did. >> since stand your ground has been implemented, the language and the charge in the self-defense case has been changed. you see now the buzz words stand your ground being used in these charges, even though that defense is not be
? >> well, the prosecutor prosecutor plays a role along with the defense in making recommendations to the jury -- to the judge with respect to the jury charge. and to the extent this charge could have been presented in a more plain and understandable fashion, the entire system bears responsibility for that. >> thanks to my legal panel. coming up, juror b29 said zimmerman got away with murder. now calls to change the stand your ground law are getting louder. >>> plus, why attorney general eric holder may be bringing his voting rights fight to north carolina. and bill o'reilly and the right continued the desperate push to change the conversation on race from rap music to chicago violence to preaching about the black family, anything but race. >> the reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the african-american family. >> i'll show you what is behind the desperation. >>> and friend or foe, i want to know. e-mail me at reply al. it's coming up. i'm a careful investor. when you do what i do, you think about risk. i don't like the ups and

their job? >> well, i initially felt that this was probably going to be a defense case because the prosecution just didn't have the evidence. but anybody who watched this network during the trial knows that as time went on, i began to see evidence that the prosecution, they simply weren't arguing and by closing argument they failed to put it together. it's entirely predictable this jury would take the jury instructions the law and try to apply the facts and if they don't fit they have to acquit and what jurors do in every case. >> were you surprised by what she was saying? >> no. this is exactly what i was saying frankly before the verdict this is how it was going to turn out when both sides are arguing reasonable doubt only one possible outcome and that was acquittal. she couldn't put it together. that is the prosecution' job. give them the theory of the case. that didn't happen. they failed to do that and so this was the predictable outcome and i'm so moved by her -- her tension, her conflict that she somehow knows this wasn't the right outcome but it's the one she had to com
by political asylum. there is a complete defense for whistle blowers to criminality. think about it. the people who expose the milan massac massacre, should they have been prosecuted. auschwitz, should that person have been prosecuted? >> david, i'd love to get your thoughts on this. the debate over whether or not lives have been harmed is still very a raging debate. a lot of people would argue the other side of that. >> one thing that bradley manning did was he didn't leak documents on a given one of these things, you know, that michael just went through was a major dump that had what some people depending where they sit, good leaks and bad leaks. to me, it's very troubling that he would be prosecuted under the espionage act even though he was let off on the aiding and abetting the enemy, which i thought was ridiculous, is this really espionage. if you look at the washington post, they have a great chart this morning, 20 odd different counts. michael i'm sure is familiar with all of them. only a few espionage. there were others about leaking classified information, violating regulations, thing
place at the wrong time. the inmate had been assaulted and my defense to them was telling them i was in the area and i was just pushed out of the way as the inmate was trying to get away from the person that assault him. >> bullock was anxiously awaiting a hearing with the prison's administrative law judge to plead his case. in the meantime, he let us know that while ad seg meant losing his television, the location of his cell at least made it possible to keep up with current events. >> this cell right here in front of the police station, to me, is the best cell on this range due to the fact that you get a lot of movement. you see who is coming in and out and inmates, c.o.s, good scoops on who's dating who with the c.o.s, who got into it with who, whoever it may be. >> so do you know what happened between brad and jen? >> brad and jen? yeah. they're divorced. >> three days later, bullock was about to face his own life-altering event, his hearing on the assault charge. >> we're coming up to see the inmate bullock to see the committee today. he's being charged with a serious rule v
defense attorney ken padowitz. thank you all for joining me. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> joy, what is your reaction to hearing that this juror says, quote, george zimmerman got away with murder? >> you know, i think, first of all, it's finally a relief to find out that really there were no blacks on the jury. there was a matter of contention. we know now this was the juror who initially wanted to charge second-degree murder. so in her mind, this was a murder, it wasn't a killing. but you have all of these dynamics. and seema can probably talk more about this than i can. you have only six people, six women, the group think and the pressure that had to be on this juror to go all the way from second-degree murder, and as she said, to fight to the end for that idea, to have two other jurors who wanted manslaughter and three jurors who wanted to acquit when they took that first vote according to b37, the other juror. so the idea that you took three people who thought that this was a murder or at least a crime and have them converted over by the pressure that had to have been put o
furloughed. who's going to man veterans hospitals? who's going to make sure defense work gets done? who's going to take care of indian reservation health care and schools? i mean that's -- those are federal responsibilities and shutting down the government for a goal that you can't achieve that way is just counterproductive. >> what do you think of the reporting that we're getting saying that republicans intend on using the august recess to pressure reluctant lawmakers on this strategy? i mean i guess as a republican, how devastating, how destructive in this infighting for the party on the whole? >> oh, i never mind debates. look, i think that's part of what politics is about and people advance ideas. again, remember, this is a difference over tab tix, not objectives. none of us are supporting obama care. in that sense i think we take our eye off the ball and if you again adopt a strategy that can't work -- this one just simply will not work -- you falsely raise the hoech your own supporters that it might succeed and you're going to be pretty devastated when you fail. so again this is j
to that part and could face up to 20 years in prison for that. in terms of aiding the enemy, the defense argues that bradley manning, of course, was a whistle-blower, according to the defense, that he was trying to reveal abuses and crimes actually committed by the u.s. military in the wars in both iraq and afghanistan. legal experts say the prosecution may have a hard time proving aiding the enemy in this case because you have to prove intent and although some of these documents ended up in the hands of former al qaeda leader osama bin laden no evidence whatsoever, none presented during the trial, that bradley manning knew that those documents would end up in his hands. in fact, one legal expert, military legal expert told us the only case he remembers was back in the civil war where a union soldier was charged with aiding the enemy when he leaked the position of union troops to a newspaper in alexandria, virginia. >>> all workers have been accounted for after explosions rocked a propane plant in florida overnight. eight people taken to the hospital and no word on what ignited the explosions.
in a strong national defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time.
money. there would be no more shared national defense. it would just be texas on its own. the land where nobody messes with the fact that poor people can't afford health insurance. that was almost four years ago exactly. >> the opposition to reforming health care isn't the most cogent thing in the world thus far. the gop health care solutions group in congress, you will recall, admitted this week they think it's best if they don't actually offer any health care solutions. they'd rather just keep saying no to whatever it is the democrats are offering no matter what it is. but in this rollicking substance-free festival of incoherence, there is one man who is determined to be the most incoherent of all. little known outside his home state for anything other than having beautiful hair and for threatening to secede from the union back in april, texas governor rick perry is now threatening that texas will also secede from health care. i told you it was incoherent. speaking with a conservative talk show host yesterday on wbap in arlington, texas, governor perry had this to say about what he wan

, they are not necessary. the law of self-defense worked well for years and years an years. and i think there is a determination, and i was proud that both the attorney general and the president, as well as many others, have commented -- john mccain's words that these laws should be reviewed -- were also welcome, that there is a growing consensus that these laws are inconsistent with safe communities. our own poll shows race relations are, 50% of whites think race relations are fairly or very good, but only 38% of african-americans. you think that that's the impact of the verdict, partly? >> there's no doubt that the verdict has had an impact. it's, to some extent, affected people's confidence in the criminal justice system. i think that we've seen conflict and a lot of of tough language being played out indeed in the media. i remain optimistic and hopeful that reasonable minds, that people who are ready to understand that while we've come a great distance when it comes to race and race relations in this nation, in the 21st century there is a lot of unfinished work and that we've got to
the prosecution failed and the defense succeeded? >> i've said many times the prosecution bungled this case and failed to connect the jury instructions the law she is talking about with the evidence. in my opinion, the evidence was there. but the prosecution essentially asked questions in closing argument having a arguing reasonable doubt like the defense. of course this woman and probably many other jurors as well who is so conflicted and knows in her heart that something is wrong here that an injustice was done but that she was sworn to follow the law as it was given her. they were given 27 pages of confusing jury instructions. they had a prosecutor who didn't connect the dots and didn't give them the evidence to connect it to the jury instructions the way prosecutors do in every other murder case in america every day so this is how it came out. now not only is the martin family, of course, devastated, we heard that on yet another very gracious statement from sybrina fulton, but now the jurors are left feeling guilty and feeling terrible about the outcome of this case. >> now, goldie, thi

's trying to go on the offense and put republicans on defense. by narrowing it down as he did, he's trying to make it a clearer choice. certainly republicans are coming up with their reasons why they don't want to do it, and it gets back to the fact they want it coupled with other programs, other attempts to overhaul the tax code. so it will be interesting to see whether and how long republicans can just say they don't want this. i think, you know, we've seen this sort of play happen before in washington where the president goes on offense. he gets democrats or republicans back on their heels and they come up with something else. we see this play out until a deadline. >> and the president referred to when i think some people believed that republicans are at least a part of the party back on its heels as it relates to obama care. i want to the play what ted cruz said in an interview, i believe it was yesterday, as the president noted 40 attempts, but it's more than that, to repeal obama care. let's play ted cruz. >> this is our last and best chance to defund it. stand up, use the constituti

stroked. but the sequester cuts, half of them come out of the defense budget. idea when the sequester was conceived was that it was supposed to be so terrible for both the right and the left that it could never be allowed to become law. then the compromise was struck, was no, nobody can come up with anything they like better so we'll let it become law and that's acceptable to a lot of people on the hill but it is really unacceptable to john mccain. both he and the president would really like to come up with a deal to replace the sequester and it's given him an incentive to cozy up to democrats. and work with some people like lindsey graham. >> which "cozy up," we mean talk to. i think we allow ourselves to be hijacked by this narrative that you are cozying up to narratives if you are talking to the white house about matters of national import. >> it is not just talking. the end game for mccain is to come up with a big fiscal deal that does things that conservatives would really dislike because it would unwind part of the sequester. mccain i think cares much less about the total size o
in a minute. here's my general question. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing because we're concerned about civil liberties. >> if you come out what looks to be an argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it we have to be careful how we do that, and what the president suggested is that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branches of government. the answer is not to scrap the intelligence gathering that has demonstrably helped keep the american people safer. >> i don't like this. >> trisha: i'm not
by the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration by cutting domestic priorities in order to fund defense. that's unacceptable. he won't sign that. the across-the-board cuts are hurting our future. >> fair enough, but the process in washington over continuing to fund the government or raising the debt ceiling is necessarily a process that has to be engaged in. i guess what i'm asking is, is the president, unlike what he's done before signaling, he will go to the brink this time in order to stop cuts that he thinks will harm the economy? >> what the president did this week is he sent a very clear message that washington has to stop playing these brinksmanship games. it's not about who wins and who loses -- >> but this report, mr. secretary, indicates indeed the white house is setting itself on a position to go to the brink, in order to force republicans -- >> what we have said is congress needs to get its work done and needs to fund the kinds of things the american middle class need, and we need to get the debt limit extended in a way that doesn't create a crisis. that is what every congre

and will not face the death penalty. and in what may be the most dramatic proceedings, the defense began presenting witnesses in the priel of whitey bulger today. they're looking to convict on gambling, extortion, drug trafficking, and 19, yes, 19 murder charges. a question on everyone's mind is, will whitey testify? he has apparently told a friend he wants to set the record straight. joining us are the captains of our legal team, attorney seema ayer, and former prosecutor patrick murphy. thanks for being here. seema, i want to start with the whitey bulger case and that question. do you expect him to testify? overall, what's the defense's strategy? >> krystal, dear, i hope not. hasn't he said enough? any time we've seen that man in court, he's basically getting bleeped for cursing. so can you just imagine what he's going to say? >> it would be great tv. >> of course, of course. that's why we're here. however, at this point president defense has done enough to set up some sort of reasonable doubt in this case. if he testifies like within every other case, state or federal, in this country, when a de
are the people who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people who are making us weak in defense. >> in fact, chris christie's new jersey pays much more into the federal government through taxation than it gets back in federal spending. for every dollar in tax revenue that new jersey sends to washington it gets back only 77 cents. where does the 23 cents go? to rand paul's kentucky and other states. think of them as the gimme states, if you will, who take much more from the federal government than they ever pay for in federal tax revenue. for every dollar rand paul's kentucky sends to washington kentucky gets back $1.57. chris christie might be seeking the electoral votes of rand paul's gimme gimme state someday. so he will probably use a different line of defense against rand paul's gimme gimme gimme nonsense. joining me now, steve mcmahon, veteran democratic strategist and co-founder of purple strategies. steve, who are you betting on in this fight? >> i love it. i hope they go and they fight to a draw an
line of defense against rand paul's give me, give me, give me nonsense. i was so wrong. not about the dollars and cents. but about chris christie. he went there today. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he is going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start to cut the pork barrel defense he sends home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollars and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents per dollar, maybe he should look at that before he looks at the federal side. because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon. >> and rand paul foolishly talked about bacon. >> this is the king of bacon, we have two military bases in kentucky. and is governor chris christie recommending we shut down the military bases? he wants to be this great champion of the military? what does he want to do, shut down the military bases? he is making a big mistake fighting with the republicans, because the republican party is shrinking there on the east coast, attacking me is not helping the party, he is hurting the party. >> two military bases in kentucky,
. we do really think that the federal government, it's first priority is defense of this nation. most people think this sequester is not good for our military. how can we substitute some other spending cuts in lower priority areas so we can reinterject those dollars into the military so we don't hollow out our military. >> speaking of common ground, yesterday, the president laid out what the white house is calling a new grand barring gab well as investing in infrastructure and jobs. you have supported some of those things in the past. where do you come down on his plan? >> he's got a framework out there so we'll have to see the details. he's acknowledging we have problems. we have an uncompetitive corporate tax rate that is really stymieing investment. really disincentivizing investment into jobs and business expansion here. we've got at least 1 trillion$1 if not 2trillion of corporate income basically parked overseas. our interstate highway system, we've seen bridges collapse, so we probably do need to spend money on infrastructure. the president got his package that was supposed to
they will issue saying this is the damage that was done when these leaks came out. his defense is going to try to say, no, the damage was not that severe he should get on the lighter end of the sentencing. >> when we think about the advocacy group they are calling this verdict a chilling warning to whistle blowers against whom the obama administration is waging an offensive. do you think he has been properly labeled a whistle-blower or more of a traitor? >> it's a tricky and subjective question. i think that a large amount of the frustration that people have with the way that manning was treated there seems to be a double standard in what the administration thinks is an acceptable leaks. leaks come outlet time but the administration has been one of the most severe if not the most severe in how it responds to leaks it doesn't want to have come out. whether or not he is a whistle bl blower is a subjective qualification. the way the government respond to do what he is what most people are concerned about. >> a grand jury is still investigating wikileaks right now and remaining at a distance of wh
's the issue. >> tony, turning to a slightly different topic, i want to talk about money. secretary of defense hagel was out today talking about the pentagon budget cuts. let's take a listen. >> if sequester-level cuts persist, dod would experience nearly $1 trillion in defense spending reductions over the next ten years. to help dod balance strategic ends, ways, and means under these budget scenarios, the strategic choice of the management review scrutinized every aspect of dod's budget. everything was on the table. >> so, what does this all this mean for what we're doing in afghanistan going forward and our presence there? >> within the past week, there's been a bipartisan, much like the amash vote on nsa. there's been a real moving back towards reducing the funding for afghanistan. now, general dunford is doing his best with the commander of forces there. he's now debating about what we should do in 2014. with that said, he will have a reduced budget no matter what. and i think, frankly, that's the way to go for the most part. we have to be very careful on these choices. on the larger scale

fine in your research that is concerning? >> former secretary of defense leon panetta said the next pearl harbor may well be a cyberterror attack. i think is right about that. the fact is one of the effective ways we know that the terrorists are looking to do bad things for this country is shut down the electric power grid which would complete chaos for our country. this book is about bad guys and in this cases iranians and venezuelians. it has great characters and an exciting book. >> i think we are plenty vulnerable. a lot of people working hard on it. take a look at the transmission system for electric power that provides power to all of us. we have 200,000 miles of transmission lines. 3,500 power producers. we have got tens of thousands of these transformers that step up and step down the power. most of them 40 years old and most of them made overseas. everybody, including the national science foundation that has done a study on this says we have got some real vulnerability with respect to the electric power grid. >> how can the united states do something about this? how can we
african-american or listen to his defense. >> they keep saying, oh, it is a disportionate percentage after particularening nick group. that may be, but it is not a disportionate number in victims describe as committing murder. in that case i incidentally i think we stop whites too much and minorities too little. >> there you say white should be stopped less than the 15% or so they are stopped currently. what do you make of that and how do local leaders like that, how does their leadership and those kind of comments affect the type of been that you want it put in place? >> i think where the mayor is just wrong. if you have information about a specific crime, absolutely. the demographics of that circumstance should absolutely be used but just to say that because we think one race or one religion is more likely to commit crimes, we will stop them for investigation, no. that is not permitted. it is sloppy police work. it won't get you the information you need and it alienates community. you are using scarce resources in an inefficient way. and it is against the values of our country. so right
. >> brian, the thing i think links what bill o'reilly said on his program last night and ray kelly's defense of his record is the idea that the best thing you can do for young african-american men, young african-americans in general is have a very intense law and order state that is very aggressive about policing and putting wrongdoers in jail because the victims of those wrongdoers are, themselves, african-american, and you have spent your adult career working in the criminal justice system. my question to you is, does that argument have purchase with you? >> no, it really doesn't. it's a distraction. trayvon martin wasn't killed because he didn't have two parents who loved him. he wasn't killed because of some social deficit or some cultural deficit. he was killed because of a presumption of guilt. all over this country, we're allowing black and brown children to be burdened with the presumption of guilt so they live their whole lives always being suspected. we had the president of the united states acknowledging his own dealings with this presumption of guilt. when anyone says that's not
